For answers to some commonly asked questions, please check out our FAQ Section. When you're ready to join, just fill out the registration form below. The choir is open to everyone who agrees to follow these guidelines and expectations:
General Membership Expectations
RHP is a choir of LGBTQ2* community members and allies dedicated to expressing and celebrating their diverse identities and experiences through the power of song. It is expected that all members of RHP will:
Support the mission and goals of RHP by participating in the choir’s activities, including rehearsals, performances, fundraisers and other RHP events, according to their abilities
Comply with the By-Laws & Policies of RHP as set by the general membership in conjunction with the Board of Directors
CODE of Conduct
RHP values diversity and inclusion. We strive to be a community that is welcoming to all those who want to join us. By joining the choir, all members commit to acting and communicating respectfully towards and about each other. Our full Code of Conduct, policy A-3, can be found here.
Rehearsals & Musical Instruction
Members are expected to attend all rehearsals, including extra rehearsals around performance times, and are strongly encouraged to attend sectionals when possible. If a significant number of rehearsals are missed, the member may, at the discretion of the Director, be asked to refrain from participating in performances.
Members come to this choir with widely varying levels of musical experience. In order for the choir to learn the necessary repertoire, and to show respect for the Artistic Director and each other, members are expected to be present and be ready to rehearse on time.
During rehearsals choir members must save their conversations for the break. Urgent musical questions should be asked of the Director, but general questions or concerns should be directed to the section leaders outside of rehearsal time. It is expected that members will follow Policy A-3: Code of Conduct, when communicating about music or other matters.
Learning tools such as YouTube links and learning tracks may be provided to assist in the learning of repertoire, but it is expected that members will do some musical “homework” in between practices.
Members may also be asked to participate in movement and/or choreography that is defined for performances. It is expected that all members participate to the best of their abilities.
All sheet music and performance binders provided to members are either owned by RHP, or are on loan to RHP from various community organizations, and must be returned at the end of each term, or upon request. Sheet music may be marked only with a pencil, not with ink or highlighter, and must be erased of all markings before being returned.
All practices and performances are scent-free to ensure that those members who have allergies or reactions to scents have a space where they can lend their voices and talents to the continuous development of the choir.
The 2018-19 season runs from September to May, with the first term running September through January, and the second term running February through May. All RHP performing members must pay the annual registration fee of $175 for the 2018-19 season. The fall term fee is set at $75 and the winter term fee is set at $100. Payment is due by the last rehearsal of the first month of each term. Failure to make payments by the due dates may result in suspension of membership.
RHP strives to ensure that everyone who wants to join us has the opportunity to do so, regardless of their financial situation. We encourage those in financial need to apply for RHP’s Energy Exchange Program.
